Metal Goodies Galore


We went to the monthly flea market in Canton today and I hit the metal motherload! We found this great vendor with tons of metal findings, prisms and doorknobs. Oh my! He was terrific as he helped me find some wonderful treasures and there were lots of stories for several of the pieces. He and my husband had a long talk about a few things but I was in art frenzy with all the goodies to pick from! Here's a pic of what I got and the best part is that he comes to the monthly flea market in McKinney so I can travel only a few blocks to get stock up.

My desk is covered in pieces drying after coats of gesso and absorbent ground. There should be some art happening this week with all these backgrounds drying and new fun pieces needing a good home.
